Annual New Year's dinner

My family had been going to Joss for New Year's Eve for several years now and always look forward to eating here. Good food, friendly staff, and excellent selection of quality sushi.

Sushi and Sashimi are my go to choice if I'm hungry but want something light and healthy. Joss has the freshest and highest quality sashimi I've found on the east coast. The wine selection isn't bad, and the prices, though on the high side are fair for the quality you get. It does get a little noisy at times.

Joss is by far the best sushi in Annapolis. They have many traditional forms plus many original creations. Thank to their popularity, there is constant turnover which assures freshness.

My eldest son loves sushi, my youngest son and I do not. Yet we all love Joss; it's our favorite restaurant in Annapolis. We love sitting in the window and watching the world go by while trying all the flavors of Ramune soda (they always have a nice selection) and eating takoyaki (Ikki Tenryou sent us!) While my eldest son... More

What can you say....like a favorite shirt, or a treasured coffee cup, Joss'es never disappoints. Fresh and nicely sized portions, great staff, fabulous sushi chefs (not to mention their other chefs) you can not go wrong. Enjoy.

I haven't been to Joss since their expansion; it hasn't hurt the quality of food or drink Great rolls and reasonably priced sushi including fatty tuna at a bargain price Good sides, fine seaweed salad all enjoyed in larger more modern setting Service is prompt and professional with detailed sushi knowledge

Something that all the locals know which is if you want great Sushi, first try to get into Joss' Cafe. They have always been 'the' place to go to get great food, but finding a seat could be a challenge. That situation has improved a bit as the restaurant recently expanded into the site next door. The Miso soup is... More

People travel for miles to have very fresh sushi and a good selection of Japanese specialties.Sit at the bar and be entertained by the masters as they prepare your order. The tempura is very good for non sushi eaters.
